if they share their data through data sf with us. and if we can then download it and have it available to everybody else, i think that that would be a great combination. these are a couple of the improvements that we wanted to announce today in our open data legislation in collaboration, again, with our board. but also in collaboration with code for america who has been working with us, with sf city as i mentioned earlier, spur, our department of technology, our committee on information technology, and then we have an open data working group which really tries to get volunteers from the different departments to work together and see what other kinds of data analytics that we could provide to the public. >>> i want to just say today, you're going to hear some demonstration projects that are already started with our open data. again, as a way to celebrate innovation month, not only are we opening up different companies throughout san francisco, but we want to also encourage, examples we're going to be announcing yoyo working with phil ginsberg to provide data where are small parks or whe

problems with an account in the past, have never had an account, or are not a u.s. citizen, bank on s.f. makes it easy for you to have an account. >> many people do not have a bank account because they might be in the check system, which means they had an account in the past but had problems managing it and it was closed. that gives them no option but to go to a cash -- check catcher for up to seven years. you want to give these people second chance. >> to find account best for you, follow these three easy steps. first, find a participating bank or credit union. call 211 or call one of our partner banks or credit unions and ask about the bank on s.f. account. both -- most bridges will have a sign in their window. second, ask about opening an account through bank on s.f.. a financial partner will guide you through this process and connect you with the account that is best for you. third, bring some form of identification. the california id, for an id, or your passport is fine. >> now you have open your account. simple? that is exactly why it was designed. you can access your account onli
clean power sf program and that will really help us focus our efforts on locations where customers have the most interest in participating and we're testing customers through this survey to determine their general awareness and understanding of clean power sf, their willingness to pay more for 100% green renewable energy product, the likelihood of customers opting out with the not to exceed rates that we are testing, and their interest in having that opportunity to invest locally in local clean energy projects like energy efficiency and renewable generation, and then we're also going to be testing their relative interest in clean power sf versus the pg and e proposed green tariff option that i just summarized, that data should be available in early march for us to begin to share and it's one of the key steps in an update on focusing in on the customer education component next steps for this first quarter with our newly announced or planned, perhaps it's not announced, joint puc and lafco meeting on june 25, that's going the fall within that 30 day period hopefully, if our commission dec
as they're clean power sf customers, as long as they agree to stay in, that's predicated on us getting the rates down which we'll talk about later. as long as that happens, then those people that have the solar panels on their roofs and the energy efficiency that they get installed based on the other incentives in both programs, then those people will be able to sell any excess power they have to the clean power sf program. so, we've got all these benefits that wrap in together. and i would just reiterate that even though money is tight, we need to get back to full funding of go solar sf so that we can get people to work and we can tap into all these benefits and this kind of show project for the bigger concept. >> thank you, mr. brooks. any other comments on item 10? >>> the budget, david pilpow. first i want to say it's difficult to imagine for me it's been over four years since former general manager and commissioner sklar passed a bay. i remember very well our budget hearings with then commissioner and president sklar asking tough questions at 1155. * this is the first time in many
customer survey, this will be our third customer survey for clean power sf. the main objective is for us to be able to take that data from the survey and put together that heat map that you have seen before, the map of san francisco that defines the precincts and indicates the receptivity of customers to the clean power sf program. we're going to be initially asking them the same sorts of questions we've asked in the past. what's their general awareness and understanding of clean power sf, what's their willingness to pay for 100% green renewable energy that clean energy we're intending to bring to them through the clean power sf program. their likelihood of opting out if the rates are at the not to exceed level. -- we've been discussing with the rate fairness board and with you. * and then the last two questions indicate a change, and that is reflective of changes that have occurred in the marketplace and in our program. we want to really test customers' interest in investing in local clean energy projects. we've been talking for -- throughout our development of the clean power sf progra
that take part in using that 2 million in incentives will be clean power will agree to be clean power sf customers. and then what staff didn't mention but is equally important is that the energy efficiency component. so, there's a couple million for energy efficiency. and as we did on moscone center, you never want to just put in solar by itself. you want to put in solar and efficiency together. and, so, to that extent, even though go solar sf is fairly small, even if we did fully fund it, it's like a demonstration project to show how the bigger clean power sf program which is very difficult verse and mixes solar when efficiency storage demand response combined heat and power, it's like a demonstration project to show the public what we can do as a city under the bigger program of clean power sf. and then once we get those customers to take part in go solar sf, as long as they're clean power sf customers, as long as they agree to stay in, that's predicated on us getting the rates down which we'll talk about later. as long as that happens, then those people that have the solar panels on t
have already invited sf city to help us tackle through hackatons to innovate in ways never thought of before. muni is more than just buses, it is taxis and bicycle lanes. as complicated as the system is, we're starting to get great ideas on how to improve parking and transit in more than one way. i think we're going to use technology to help guide buses and trolleys to get places on a more responsible timeframe. that is the number-one question every time i meet with employees of a new technology company, how we're going to improve muni. half of them write it to work. if they're going to spend 15 hours at work, they have to do it at work and not on muni. >> we were talking about the america's cup. they are pulling back on what they're doing in the city. i have a couple of questions related. this person wants to know how that will affect small businesses. there is an overall interest in how san francisco will support the burdens of small business. >> we're still working with america's cup to make sure small businesses do get a shot at this great event. it has been scaled down to the
sf, the pedestrian groups, the slowdown groups. they're all in dazed with us to make the streets safer -- they are all in agreement with us to make the streets safer. you will see an increased focus on the hot spots. there are hot spots along market street and everywhere else. it will signal a shared responsibility by everyone. everyone has to learn to be educated. we will start with education. we will get very deliberate. i think it will save lives. it will create a culture where everybody has to respect each other's views of the road. >> you alluded to the former mayor who said he would solve the muni problem in 100 days. he will not make that mistake, but what will you do to fix it? >> i meet regularly with mta. i have sessions with their board members as well. one is to make sure they pay very serious attention to their economics, that they build reserves to spend money on their assets, the trains, cars, and trucks. they do not have labour practices that are not efficient and keep every example of excessive and abusive things, that they take care of it. these are simple ways
their delivery of service. how many people have used this website, application called sf park? it has been helpful to thousands of people. just to reduce the amount of congestion while people look for parking spaces. it is helping us manage traffic through managing parking. that application i have been able to use to attract other mayors to take a look at how technology has helped us and can help them. i got five or six hands from other mayors, from gainesville, fla., austin, texas who said they want to see that. i have parking problems that i cannot figure out. i want to see how this works. they have been testing it and asking questions, so we formed a technology and innovation task force, a subgroup of the conference of mayors to introduce new ecology we are introducing here in san francisco, but we are along the experience to be felt across the united states. that is our giving back to the conference of mayors. that is one of the things i get excited about. every time i turn around there is a new application. we want some of those applications to reflect solutions for the problem we hav
everybody that we emphasize pedestrian use, more walking in the city, but also the safetiness of it by safety areas. with our school districts, obviously working with walk sf and the wonderful leadership in our schools and in our communities, educating everybody and helping us create the very good marketing education campaign that we need to remind everybody to do so. and then our health department, of course. they carry the very serious burden of giving us statistics, of what it is on the collision as well as injury rates and reminding us that a healthier city could be one that we reduce the fatalities that happen with pedestrians. so, this is part of that whole strategy. we will consider areas of the city that we will have to lower the speed limit and enforce it and educate people around it, as well as more serious and higher and deeper ways of educating the public and the drivers as well as pedestrians themselves. this is all part of i think a good strategy, one that i'm very willing to lead and make sure every department and all of the store fronts along here, as well as p
and twitter. we also have an alert sf system that we use that disseminates information just about the helicopter landing during yesterday's exercise, so we have those tools in place and just for your point, i think that would be a really great thing to add even to the communications drill, we know now how to communicate internally at the incident but how do you share that information and get it out. i think we could use some of those forms of exercise we use day-to-day as part of the exercise. >> i think the concept of emergency is also relative. if members of the armed forces are getting called out, that is a big emergency. for someone who is commuting to work in the morning the fact there is no electricity in one area of the city so traffic is going to be horrible and they can't get their child to day care, that is an emergency to them. that's where we use social media so we can find other things that may be happening in the city so we can send it out to our followers, also, as michelle mentioned, preemptively let others know here's what's happening with your day. >> i heard
out of cleanpower sf we will have an opportunity to use those bonds like a build out like that so i encourage you to look at that issue and work on it more and do the more comprehensive work on it. >> thank you. any other member of the public that would like to comment? and seeing none we will close public comment. i agree. the approach will be i will work with lafco staff to look at our projects and research and we will consult with lafco members as topics come up. i do have a big interest in municipal banking in san francisco and i'm not sure we're at the concept phase or the idea phase. there is a little way to g i think it's a fine idea but there is work to go to make sure it's not a mistake and i want to make sure you're moving forward but that will take effort to do that, and i like the idea of combining of city wide wi-fi looking at broadband fiber issue. i think it was something we picked up about five years ago in the city and it's worth exploring a bit further. okay. so with that we can go on to our next item. >> do we need approve the work plan? is it more the ge
that are uniquely san francisco and in that process, we ask that sf maid introduce us to la kasena, it itself is a start-up but in essence, it acts to provide opportunities for minority owned businesses that are san francisco based to move out of their home kitchens into the la casina kitchen and into the marketplace and when we spoke to the executive director of la casina, it's because the start-up cost of a kitchen is prohibitive, so we over the last year have been working with caleb and his team and have committed ourselves to picking up the tab for that kitchen so we'll build it on our dime and allow these four to six of la casina bidets -- businesses to move into that space and take over the retail space, which we think is a great win for the project and for the city, i think it provides an opportunity for a new set of memories for a new generation of people who will be moving into this area. so, in summary, we're not here to argue that the loss of the concourse space isn't significant or those who voiced opposition don't have merit in some of their argument but we do know that you acte
